thanks-living and thanks-giving in idaho

{the sunrise from this morning}

Giving thanks isn’t just something we should save for a November craft. It should be the way we live.

It’s been four months since I’ve been in Idaho, that time it changed my life (here). And I’m a different person because of it. I realize that even when our lives get so complicated and messy and it’s just too hard to breathe anymore, there’s always somewhere to go.

And that’s when you saddle your horse and ride with the wind to a place where you can be alone with the Lord and His Creation. Could it get any better than that?

So, for Thanksgiving, I went back to Idaho. To learn tons. To love more. To live simply.

{bundling up for thanksgiving day. it was cold outside!}

First, we filled our stomachs with savory turkey, and juicy ham, and casseroles, and fresh-as-a-daisy salads, and then we went and did some shooting.

I hit my card three times: once on both sides of the head, and then I nipped it on the right side (can you see it?).

 So what was your Thanksgiving like? What do you usually do?
